MAKE ME By #1 New York Times bestseller LEE CHILD
“Child is a suburb craftsman of suspense.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Reacher gets better and better.”—The New York Times
“Do yourself a favor and get hooked on this series.” —The Cleveland Plain Dealer
Hailed as “the best thrill writer of the moment” (New York Times) and “the poster boy for American crime fiction” (Los Angeles Times), with more than 100 million copies of his novels in print worldwide featuring his now iconic creation—ex Army cop and all-around tough guy Jack Reacher—Lee Child is hotter than ever!
About Reacher: For some, his brute strength and sheer physicality are his dominant traits. For others, it’s the razor-sharp instincts and mental processes that make him a force to be reckoned with. But no matter the image you have, one thing is for certain—#1 internationally bestselling Lee Child’s anti-hero Jack Reacher is one of the most iconic protagonists of contemporary suspense fiction with Stephen King crowning the Reacher novels as “the coolest continuing character series currently on offer.” Child returns this fall with MAKE ME , where Reacher encounters a case that proves to be one of the most challenging—and haunting—of his career. Most recently, Reacher was portrayed by Tom Cruise in the first film JACK REACHER, released in December 2012. A second film follows in 2016.
About MAKE ME: The novel starts with a simple statement: “Moving a guy as big as Keever wasn’t easy.” But there is nothing straightforward about the situation that Reacher enters as he steps off the train in the small town of Mother’s Rest. On the welcome platform he meets Special Agent Michelle Chang—her mission is to find her partner, the aforementioned Keever. Together—with little more than the brains and brawn between them both—they set off to uncover a missing man’s whereabouts, and the events that brought Keever to this off-the-map locale. What they will uncover will strike Reacher to the core and plunge both him and Chang headfirst into the darkest depths of human heart and mind.
